Job description

HYBRID WORKING + EXCELLENT PROGRESSION

 

The opportunity to join a fantastic agency and take the lead on some exciting events and accounts!

 

THE COMPANY 

 

For the past 30 years this boutique agency has been bringing projects to life through promotional marketing and corporate events for a broad range of industries such as automotive, travel, finance and marketing communications.

 

Handling a range of events from product launches, roadshows, award ceremonies, incentives and conferences throughout the UK, this agency keeps going from strength to strength.

 

THE ROLE

 

Due to a volume of new business wins and a busy events calendar there is now an opportunity for an experienced individual to come on board and manage a number of accounts, as well as being responsible for the delivery across these. Your key duties will include:

 

-          Account and client management

-          Taking initial briefs directly from the client

-          Producing event proposals

-          Developing the overall schedule of activities

-          Maintaining and nurturing existing client relationships

-          Creating and managing budget's

-          Working with internal teams

-          Full end to end logistics

-          Supplier management and negotiation

-          Onsite support

 

THE CANDIDATE

 

The ideal candidate must have a proven background in the end to end management of events as well as strong client facing skills. Any experience of creating proposals and pitching for business would be an added benefit, as would experience of working with automotive clients. Agency experience would be preferred but other backgrounds will also be considered.

 

In return, this agency offers a great working environment and a morale that only a smaller company can offer.  If you have corporate events experience from an agency background and are looking for a fresh challenge with a leading event agency then this could be the opportunity for you!

 

Live specialises in all disciplines (and at all levels) across events, experiential and exhibitions.  If this position isn't quite what you're looking for please visit www.live-recruitment.co.uk to view all of the opportunities we are recruiting.
